Yin Yoga is a simple and internal practice. There are only 20 Asanas and can be practice either in silence or with music. It is a new practice, founded in the late 1970s by martial arts expert and yoga teacher Paulie Zink Taoist yoga (Tao Yin).
Yin is the feminine, dark side of the Yin and Yang circle. Yin is considered passive, receptive, and reflective. Thus the practice is withdrawn, held usually in a cool room, and our intention for Yin is to practice introspective aspects of life. Yin yoga was developed to penetrate deep into connective tissue, expanding flexibility while invigorating the body's energy centers (nadis) to release blockages and increase your energy flow.

YIN YOGA BRINGS
Asanas: Poses of stillness for promoting growth, clearing energetic blockages, and enhancing circulation.
Flow: Yin flow is more than just a sequence of postures. Yin yoga incorporates smooth motion that promotes relaxed confidence, fluidity and grace in the body.
The three principles of Yin Yoga:
1. Come into each pose to your appropriate edge, finding the place where you feel a sensation. If you’re feeling it, you’re doing it.
2. Resolve to remain still while focusing on your breath and present experience, accessing beyond the muscles to deeper connective tissues.
3. Hold each pose for an extended period (3-10 minutes), allowing yourself time to truly open into the posture, resting in-between each pose to feel the after-effects.
